Finally Got Around To Some Mods This Weekend

Finally put in my seats. Tan leather and all power. Got the wiring all hooked up too.




Had this console laying around so I'm using it till my full length one comes in:



And I got some new rubbers. Not excalty the size I wanted but due to money and safety issues (my old tires were getting bald so I just had to get something) I went w/BF Goodrich A/T's 265/75/16 again. Went blackwall out this time.




And of course when you get new tires you have to try them out





I forgot how much new tires rule off road. Places that I used to have to use 4wd, I didn't this time.

And some random pics of my brothers dog. He's a bit camera shy

Those are explorer seats, correct. How much did you pay for those bad boys? Did they bolt right in or did you have to mod the brackets. Looks great.

What happened to the grill guard? Looks like it's tweaked pretty far forward..

Tires look great, so do the seats. I wish my 01 had the tan interior! AND I wish I had some a/t's to rock during the winter, got my first taste of my mud-terrains with my torsen l/s lastnight, MAJOR suckage. I want some terra grapplers or bfg a/t's to rock during the winter..

Paid $130 for the seats and $125 for shipping so $255 isnt all that bad for leather and power seats. Just had to drill out one of the mounting holes and drill out the hole for the seatbelt buckle so I could use the stock Ranger one w/the pretensioner. Not hard, just had to go and get some 7/16 x 2 bolts, washers, lock washers and nuts.

Thanks Zach. Yea I actually didn't mount it in yet. Didn't have time. Had to get the truck to BJ's for the tires, then to the range to sight my rifle in, so for no its just holding itself in with the seats.

Yea, that happened after some night wheeling Sat night after the big UFC fight. Hit some bumps a bit hard. Gotta pull it off and realign it.

Yea I like the tan myself. If it wasn't tan, I'd probally would have changed it to black.
